So, what's new? ...

September 30, 2011 - One year later and there are new updates?  What have we been doing?  Well, this has occupied our time most of the summer.

Wylin is three and fun to play with.

We went to Oregon this summer, hunting for waterfalls, visiting lighthouses, and camping at Crater Lake.

We had our first camping experience with Wylin, up on Mount Rainier.  Did a bit more hiking along Stevens Canyon and Box Canyon.

Started a Christmas page and put up some pictures from 2010 (I am really behind).

Like birds?  Maybe you can tell us what kind of birds these are ...

Changed the layout of the website a bit.  More to come to make it easier to navigate with an iPad.

Also coming soon - Calvin's wedding


September 10, 2010 - What haven't we updated?  Out Adventures map now includes links to Alaska and Canada.  We have pictures from our recent cruise.  We also have update photos of Wylin and Jesse, plus some outings with Calvin's clan on the Chehalis scenic railroad.  Sections of the Fun page have been updated, including the Lighthouses, Waterfalls, Train Depots, Sunsets, Animals, and Flowers pages.


April 10, 2010 - More Wylin, more waterfalls, a new sign, and a trip to Vegas.


September 19, 2009 -  trip to the Mountain (we went here, here and here), exploring Woodard Bay, and a family trip to the Southwest Washington Fair.  And the dahlias came in:

November 14, 2009 - Just back from visiting family and friends in Kansas.  We took a few road trips to find waterfalls and train depots.  We even have a new sign from Elk Falls.


September 19, 2009 - Yes, more Wylin, another trip to the Mountain (we went here, here and here), exploring Woodard Bay, and a family trip to the Southwest Washington Fair.


July 1, 2009 - Let's see ... Wylin turned one in June; we took a trip to Montana, Wyoming (including Yellowstone), South Dakota, North Dakota, and Spokane; some new plants and yard projects including the bridge we put in last year.

Also, we added an American White Pelican, a Killdeer, and a Pronghorn to out fauna page.


March 22, 2009 - New pictures of Wylin (9 months) and our weekend trip to Seattle.

December 25, 2008 - Ok, so I haven't updated the pages recently ... sorry!  I have a couple new pictures of Wylin and Christmas photos of the kids and some photos of our day trips to Bartlesville OK and Omaha NE in November.  Launi and I have been travelling together for 5 years and we've now visited 25 states.

We're up to 12 inches since Wednesday (12/17) and there may be more by the end of the day Monday


September 23, 2008 - Added pictures from our last camping trip, including the Mountain Goat.  Added the Gray Jay (thanks Woody!)


August 6, 2008 - More pictures of Wylin.  Re-did the Family page.


July 26, 2008 - Added pictures of our camping vacation in Kalaloch and on Mt. Rainier.  Added two new Fun pages, the BFT page and the Signs page.  Updated the Waterfalls and the Lighthouses pages with places we saw on our vacation.

February 29, 2008 - Updated all the fonts to be consistent across all the pages.  Added pictures from our camping trip on Mt. Rainier in September, our Alabama trip in November, and our trip to Leavenworth, WA, in February.  Updated the Fauna page with birds and butterflies from the November trip and a new waterfall from the September trip.


July 31, 2007 - A couple more updates - our latest outdoor project (the stepped garden) and the last of the lilies have bloomed.


June 27, 2007 - A couple of updates - we changed the picture of the family room to show the tank stand (with or new fish), we've updated the Office page with pictures of our office (finally!), and pictures of our latest woodworking project, the Cookbook Case.  We've also updated some problems friends have found and we've expanded our Flora frame to include all the plants we've run across including flowers at the new house.


June 16, 2007 - We've updated the website with lots of new pictures.  We've loaded pictures of most of the house, including the flowers and yard and the storm damage pictures from last winter.  I've put many of our favorite hobbies in frames so you can find what you want to look at without having to look through everything.  We'll be making more changes in the next couple of weeks as we clean up and expand our current pictures.


October 2, 2006 - We ware starting to add pictures of our house under the Friends & Family pages.  We spent a great deal of time between the move-in (August 6th) and our housewarming party (September 22nd) getting the house ready.  We are now working on getting the yard in shape before the rainy ("monsoon") season begins.

In addition to pictures of the house, we also have pages for some of our hobbies.  Please check out the Fun pages to see some of our projects from the last year.
